Yellow cotton fabric, yarns, glass and seed beads, brads, artificial flowers, raffia, wire, embroidery floss, metallic thread, ribbon, buttons
I took the color yellow and started exploring every kind of embellishment idea I could discover. First I raided my stash at home and then hit every department at JoAnn's. I began by needle felting six different yarns onto a base fabric. I then used embroidery floss to stitch X's and french knots. I next added the beads, brads, buttons and fake flowers. I then sewed on puffs of several other yarns, bits of ribbon and yellow raffia. I then quilted this onto a backing fabric with gold embroidery floss and bound the edges with several yarns. The last touch was the wire swirls and springs. Who said less is more!
